Bob Garfield's Novel, Bedfellows

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

On the Media’s Bob Garfield talks about his new novel, Bedfellows. Jack Schiavone wants to rebuild his life after an embezzlement scandal saw him drummed out of his high-paying advertising job. So he’s reinvented himself as “Mr. Mattress,” a discount bedding franchisee in Ebbets Beach, Brooklyn. He has a nice, quiet life until he gets sucked into a simmering mob war.

Probably will be a flop and another offensive to Italian-American community piece of nonsense (that's the nice word).
How can you be nice and still extort money? Ask any banker, Leonard.
